Here, Hayes lets nothing get in the way of the music's momentum and he clears out the bric-a-brac in favor of adrenaline, with winning results. "One Way Out" adds muscle and sweat to his flair with hooks, paving the way for driving psych-rock standouts like "Fokus" and "Outhouse." Of course, there's still a fair amount of detail in Slurrup's arrangements and instrumentation; the spiky keyboards that propel "Nothing Wrong" are essential to Hayes' music with and without Plush, while "Get It Right"'s backward guitars add to the impression that it's the mirror image of a Korp Sole Roller song. All in all, Slurrup is a smile-inducing reminder that it's too easy to pigeonhole him as just a master craftsman - and that Hayes' pop is arguably even more potent when it's not quite as elaborate.
